  • I Told You Testosterone Would Make Women’s Sports More Interesting

    To be fair—given the perverse transgender agenda of the modern left—my idea was that men (like Bruce—“Dude Looks Like a Lady!”—Jenner) would compete as “women.” My idea was not that female athletes who want to pretend that they are men (or boys)—and thus take athletic performance-enhancing drugs such as testosterone to help live such a deluded fantasy—would compete as females. I did not imagine this because (I thought) virtually every female athletic association would not allow such an advantage. Of course, in most athletic associations this is the case, but at the high school level in the state of Texas,...
  • Trinity’s transgender wrestler credits teammates for his state title

    Trinity’s transgender wrestler credits teammates for his state title CYPRESS Mack Beggs came here to wrestle. And wrestle he did, manhandling four opponents over two days as he captured a Class 6A girls state championship Saturday. The 110-pound gold medalist also captured something else: The attention of a nation increasingly polarized by transgender issues. Beggs, a 17-year-old transgender boy from Euless Trinity High School, didn’t come to the state tournament seeking to carry the transgender torch, or to become a lightning rod, or to be the target of a lawsuit that could end his high school wrestling career. But those...

    The manly hormone evolved 500 million years ago — from estrogen. 1. Testosterone is produced in men’s testicles, women’s ovaries and the adrenal glands of both sexes. In the early weeks of pregnancy, it kicks off the development of reproductive organs for males. 2. After birth, testosterone plays a role in regulating processes from fat distribution to red blood cell production. 3. Long before the hormone was discovered, people ascribed youth-restoring powers to the testicles. Roman naturalist Pliny the Elder noted the sexually stimulating effects of dining on hyena genitals (with honey, of course). 4. Honeyed hyena testes sound preferable...

    I am like legit going through some issues, political and personal, and I can’t tell you how much I have been enjoying the Australian Open. What is it about slices and lobs and serving down the “T” that makes everything better? As we discussed yesterday, Serena Williams and Venus Williams are going head-to-head in the Australian Open final tomorrow/today (tomorrow morning for us Americans). And now this: Rafael Nadal made it to the finals. Which means that we’re getting an old-school Roger Federer vs. Rafa Nadal final, like the good old days!!

  • Man 'cured' of prostate cancer after doctors shock tumour to death with testosterone

    11/30/2016 7:21:13 PM PST · by Enterprise · 26 replies ^ | 30 NOVEMBER 2016 | Sarah Knapton
    A man with advanced prostate cancer is believed to be cured after doctors 'shocked' his tumour to death with huge amounts of testosterone. The result has been described as 'unexpected' and 'exciting' because most prostate cancer therapies work by depriving tumours of testosterone, because cancer uses it as a fuel.

    A Fort Myers doctor says if you are a man thinking about voting for Hillary Clinton, you may need to have your testosterone checked. It's a controversial commercial hitting Southwest Florida airwaves. The doctor says it's a humorous way to promote his business and also join the political discussion, but some radio listeners aren't laughing. “Most are not aware of the effect low T can have on your mental state. For instance your ability to focus and think clearly," he said. Dr. Dareld Morris of Morris Medical and Weight Loss Center in Fort Myers is issuing a warning to all...

    The headlines about the opening ceremony for the 2016 Summer Olympics shout out that for the first time a transgender woman will be featured in the event. But in an article posted on the Telesur website, the push for genderless games does not mean transgender men and transgender women will be treated equally. The last paragraph of the article reveals that male to female athletes will be tested, but female to male persons will not. …

    Latest dispatch from the Department of Too Much Information: Thomas Roberts wants you to know that if diagnosed with low-T, he would take a testosterone supplement "without hesitation." More surprising is Roberts' reckless attitude. Asked whether testosterone's possible health risks would dissuade him from taking the hormone, Roberts replied: "No. I want to live today, I will borrow from tomorrow." Roberts' startling admission came during today's Morning Joe segment on Time's current cover story, "Manopause," which looks into the testosterone-supplement boom and its associated dangers.

  • Record Number Of Men Seeking Treatment For Low Testosterone Levels

    COLUMBUS, Ohio - Hair coloring and facial treatments like Botox help many people look and feel younger, but increasingly, more men are seeking a way to feel younger. In record numbers, they're seeking a way boost to the male hormone testosterone. We've seen the ads that warn of low testosterone, the male hormone that builds muscle, controls fat, and improves sex drive. They show a man concerned about less energy, moodiness and a low sex drive. Urologist Dr. Gregory Lowe at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center says he has seen patients come in asking for the hormone even...
  • Low Estrogen May Play a Role in 'Male Menopause'

    Associated Press ^ | September 12, 2013 | Marilynn Marchione
    TV ads tout testosterone treatments for "low T," but surprising new research shows a different hormone may play a role in less sex drive and more fat as men age. Estrogen — the female hormone — is needed by men, too, and the study gives the first clear evidence that too little of it can cause certain "male menopause" symptoms. "A lot of things we think are due to testosterone deficiency are actually related to the estrogen deficiency that accompanies it," said Dr. Joel Finkelstein of Massachusetts General Hospital. He led the U.S.-government funded study, which appears in Thursday's New...

  • Why fathers are faithful: Becoming a dad causes a testosterone drop

    FULLTITLE: Why fathers are faithful: Becoming a dad causes a testosterone drop that makes men less likely to stray They say having a family changes a man for ever. But it may not just be a sense of duty that drives new dads to swap evenings in the pub for quiet nights at home. Scientists have discovered fatherhood can halve testosterone levels – and stop men from straying. A study has found that when men become fathers, their bodies suppress production of the sex hormone, making them more interested in parenting than mating. American researchers studied more than 600 men...
  • How Testosterone Protects against Inflammation

    07/26/2011 10:13:19 AM PDT · by decimon · 15 replies
    Pharmacists of the University Jena analyze why men suffer more rarely from inflammatory diseases than women It’s all down to the testosterone: men are usually more muscular than women, they have deeper voices and more body hair. And – men are less susceptible to inflammatory diseases and allergies than women. This is also due to the male sex hormones as pharmacists at the Friedrich Schiller University Jena (Germany) have shown in a recent study. “It is mostly women who are affected by diseases like rheumatoid arthritis, psoriasis or asthma“, Professor Dr. Oliver Werz from the Jena University explains. Although this...

    There are more than forty million men in the U.S. suffering from low levels of testosterone. But the vast majority of them don’t even know it. As the tremendous popularity of Viagra suggests, many of these men are experiencing symptoms of male sexual dysfunction. Others find themselves fighting more subtle battles against obesity, fatigue, depression and insomnia-common symptoms of low testosterone that most doctors overlook or attribute to the natural process of aging or stress. (1-2) Why is modern medicine missing the low testosterone mark?

    BOSTON – The long-standing prohibition against testosterone therapy in men with untreated or low-risk prostate cancer merits reevaluation, according to a new study published in The Journal of Urology. "For many decades it had been believed that a history of prostate cancer, even if treated and cured, was an absolute contraindication to testosterone therapy, due to the belief that testosterone activated prostate cancer growth, and could potentially cause dormant cancer cells to grow rapidly," says Abraham Morgentaler, MD of Men's Health Boston. "Generations of medical students and residents were taught that providing testosterone to a man with prostate cancer was...

    U of A researcher questions whether genius might be a result of hormonal influences A longstanding debate as to whether genius is a byproduct of good genes or good environment has an upstart challenger that may take the discussion in an entirely new direction. University of Alberta researcher Marty Mrazik says being bright may be due to an excess level of a natural hormone. Mrazik, a professor in the Faculty of Education's educational psychology department, and a colleague from Rider University in the U.S., have published a paper in Roeper Review linking giftedness (having an IQ score of 130 or...
